The pressure weighing on Alvarez after losing his belt this past November to Michael Chandler – and at the tail end of his contract – seemed to have no effect on his performance. As expected, Aoki dove at his legs in an attempt to reproduce the submission that forced him to cry uncle four years ago in Japan under the DREAM banner. But he rejected that attempt, walking to the other corner of the cage, and waited for the right moment to strike.

Pawing out with faux-strikes, he prompted Aoki to take a risk with an uncharacteristic elbow strike out of the blue. In response, he uncorked an uppercut that dropped the submission specialist. Aoki seemed confused and unprepared for a lunging overhead punch that caught him on the temple and prompted a swarm of punches from Alvarez that forced referee intervention at the 2:14 mark of the first.

In reality, though, Aoki's corner had thrown in the towel several beats before the official wave-off.

With a big bargaining chip hanging around his neck, Alvarez implored his boss to come over the top of a perhaps inevitable offer from the UFC, which has long hovered as an option for the popular fighter. Rebney had previously told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he was pulling for the first Bellator champ, but would be firm in making him fight through a tournament to get a rematch with Chandler.

Sal Penis - That is a fucking SICK card


strangely I've been looking forward to bellator
more and more every week these past few years.

dont really like the douche bag heavy metal presentation

but the fights are quality

interesting to see if aoki has worked on his weakness

but alvarez is not messing around

imo its eddies fight to lose as long as he doesnt make a mistake and get caught in aokis game.

glad Maiquel Falcao is back

BRog and Aoki all day. Crazy to think a good card like this is going under the radar. I think this is a sign that us MMA fans have been spoiled lately!

Besides Michael Chandler, these are the two best lightweights in the world not currently signed by Zuffa, and they're actually fighting. Not something you see every day. Huge main event for Bellator. Phone Post

 As always you can watch the entire event live on Spike.tv, you can also pause it if you're at work and need to do something.

WAR BELLATOR!

This.

Woodard/Hawn/Chandler could/will smash a good portion of the UFC LW talent pool.

However, I may be a bit biased on Woodard. Montana mustache!
